The Future of Cyber Operations

Imagine a time where governments, nation states and corporations can hack back! With restrictions lifted, we are focused not only on how to protect our intellectual property and sensitive data, but also we can now protect our agencies by responding to events with active operations!

 

The year is 2025, and your agency has been exploited by the country of Slandovia. As the leader of a special Red Team, you have just received a brief on how Slandovia has plans to infiltrate agencies' secure and sensitive data. Your team has been tasked with infiltrating and dismantling Slandovia’s plans. With only 24 hours to complete this mission, are you ready to identify and compromise your enemy?

Information for Participants

Teams will receive their access code to enter the CTF event within 2 days of the start time of the event.

 

Teams will have access to two areas for the CTF challenge.

  • Hack The Box warm up area - this CTF access is a fun way to dust off the cobwebs

  • SIXGEN’s HACKBACK 2021 CTF with never seen before custom challenges. This is the area where SIXGEN will be reviewing and assessing the teams for potential recruitment.
